Senate Advising

The Office for Student Engagement staff enjoys a close relationship with the Reed student senate. We attend senate meetings, meet with senate leadership and work with the treasury.

Student Senate Fall 2018

The student senate plays an influential role on Reed's campus. Senate is the voice of the students: its members fund student organizations, participate in campus policy-making, and work with the staff members to improve the quality of student life. If you would like to get involved or learn more about the election process, email a current senate member.

Reed Student Senate Bylaws mandate that the interest earned from the Student Body Endowment funds a project which broadly benefits the student body. A student committee, chaired by a student senator, and made up entirely of students, oversees the SOS programs. The SOS Committee currently administers two programs:

  • Discretionary grants assist students experiencing substantial financial hardship who would benefit significantly from a single grant of up to $2,000. This may include, but is not limited to, necessary medical costs, unexpected educational costs, or emergency travel costs. Please contact the SOS Committee chair directly for instructions on how to apply. Grants are available on a rolling basis throughout the year, and applications may be submitted through the final day of class.

  • Summer project grants applications open midway through the spring semester. The Committee intends to financially assist students who are pursuing unpaid or low-paid academic, educational, creative, or career-oriented summer opportunities. By establishing this fund, the Senate hopes to enable students to pursue opportunities that otherwise lack a channel of financial support through the college.

Community Documents

In order to understand how Reed functions and how to get things done on campus, it is important to be familiar with Reed’s community documents. These documents include the constitutions, bylaws, and policies that govern a number of aspects of campus life. The following documents can be found at sin.reed.edu.
